the master of the mirror?

are you living a life to touch the hearts of others, to bring compassion to the downtrodden, or are you living like you are looking in the mirror, in love with the image?

where has selfless love gone? where is kindness?

when I spent my days driving around looking for the lost lamb, strung out, on the edge of death, where were you?

meeting with lattes, loud music, and laughter…while another broken heart weeps bitter tears?

will you walk where the lonely walk? will you be the one you were created to be?

someday, you too will be all alone, no one to hold your hand, lying in wait for the darkness to come cover, blue-black creeping up, from toes to the center of your eyes, until it tingles and every image dissolves, and nothing here remains in your memory. will you know what to say when you wake from that sleep? will you see your reflection in the one who wakes you from that sleep?

you are not the master of time. you are not even master of the mirror.

it is time to give up selfishness. this life is not all about you. wake up…before it is too late.
